◆ What is Parkinson's disease?

Dopamine is a substance that stimulates the brain to make movements accurately and is involved in compensatory actions such as sense of accomplishment.

◆ Diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease
Dr. Mark Lee, a neurologist at the University of Southern California's University of California, reported that the alpha-synuclein protein levels in the patients with Parkinson's disease were 423 pg / mg (picograms per gram) The average concentration of oligomeric α-synuclein, a form of aggregation of α-synuclein, is 1.45 ng / mg (nanograms per milligram), which is five times higher than that of the normal population. The researchers said.

◆ Parkinson's disease treatment
Levodopa, a precursor of dopamine, is a skeleton for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, but Calvidopara has recently been shown to stimulate dopamine through drugs to improve the effectiveness of levodopa. However, it does not completely cure the cause of the illness or prevent the progression of the disease. It may result in hallucinations, which can be caused by drugs used and may also occur in the bottle itself.

◆ Parkinson's disease life
It is good to be discovered soon and treated, but it is not different from normal person. Modern medical and surgical therapies, epidemiology and adjuvant therapy can slow down progression and improve quality of life and life expectancy.
